If bananas are in a cookie does that mean that this is considered breakfast food too?..... I think so. I have said it before, I have a SERIOUS sweet tooth and prefer to have something a little bit sweet in the morning, so while this may be a treat to some, I definitely will be slicing and serving this up for breakfast in addition to an afternoon treat (que ice cream on top)!
I am not someone that only will eat paleo, or keto, or gluten free, but I do love making dishes that use whole ingredients, and none of the processed stuff! (no white sugars or flours) Sometimes, that will automatically make a dish GF, DF, and paleo and I will label it as such for those that like to follow that lifestyle :).
So...If you are not on the "I only eat paleo train", this dish is for you too! It is melt in your mouth gooey with the right sort of golden crisp on top. This is a great recipe if you are looking to make a smash cake for your one year olds birthday!....But for now, It will be sliced and stored in my fridge/freezer and then is SUPER easy to just take out and heat up in the toaster when ready to eat. I of course, like to top it with all the toppings to switch things up but its also just fine and dandy on its own. However, I think everything tastes better with peanut butter drizzled on top!
1/3 cup peanut butter (look for ingredients that have only peanuts listed)
1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cups almond flour (I used @bobsredmill )
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup @enjoylifefoods Chocolate chips (or another brand of choice)
1.)preheat oven to 375 and spray skillet and set aside
2.) mash banana in a bowl and then add rest of wet ingredients.
3.) mix in dry ingredients and then fold in 1/2 cup the chocolate chips
4.) pour batter into skillet and add rest of the chocolate chips on top.
5.) bake for 25-30 minutes until the top looks golden brown (can even set to broil for the last 2-3min).
6.)Let it cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing

COCONUT VEGAN MATCHA DONUTS
Matcha has been pretty new to me this year mainly because about three years ago I decided to cut out caffeine entirely and was always a tad nervous to try it out again. Since I have a history of panic attacks and anxiety I learned that caffeine is one of those items that sometimes triggers those anxious feelings to occur.
However, when one of my good friends Antonella started a company (yourlixir) with her business partner, that sells the best grade of matcha you can get, I had to try a little bit out. She also assured me that matcha doesnt give you that jittery feeling that regular coffee tends to do, but is a more focused calm energy. She was completely right! I use just a tsp in some warm water and add it to my favorite nut milk and its so yummy and gives me just enough fuel for that afternoon slump.
I love it so much I started to incorporate it into my baking! Is there a better way to start than Donuts?! If I could have a donut a day for breakfast I would be a happy gal. I LOVE sweets and especially love something a little sweet over savory in the morning. However, having Dunkin Donuts every day may not be the best choice in terms of your waistline and overall health.
So...... try subbing in these yummy coconut vegan matcha donuts. I love making these on a Sunday and having them for a quick breakfast on the go during the week, or even in the afternoons as a snack with a cup of tea. These donuts are vegan, gluten and dairy free and insanely delicious!

Copy Cat Erewhonmarket Paleo Bread
I never thought there would come a day where I would be making my own bread, BUT here I am baking my own version of the famous California supermarket Erewhonmarket's paleo bread.
I have never actually been to this market, but I am always watching other foodies instagram stories and this bread is SOOO popular, and also SOO expensive. Almost seems too expensive for the amount you are getting, but people buy it because it is that good!
I have to thank @Shuangy_kitchensink for posting to her story after a trip to Expowest the actual ingredients listed on the bread. Immediately I took a screen shot, and went to town in the kitchen trying to re-create this recipe. Since I havent tried the bread from the actual market I cant honestly say it tastes the same, but the ingredients are identical and my version is pretty damn good! (Literally do not even need to add anything on top, its that GOOD)
Copy Cat Erewhonmarket Paleo Bread

sprinkle of sea salt
1/4 cup coconut oil (soft but not melted)
1 tbsp manuka honey
1 tsp apple cinder vinegar
1.) Preheat oven to 350F. Add parchment paper to a bread baking dish and spray with cooking spray (set aside)
2.) Add dry ingredients to a small bowl and mix well.
3.) in a blender or with a hand mixer add solid coconut oil and eggs on medium speed and mix well. (can use just a fork instead but easier to use hand mixer to make sure ingredients are well combined)
4.) Add remaining wet ingredients in wet mixture and blend until smooth
5.) Add in dry ingredients and mix until items combine (dont over mix) If some powder is left on the side just scrape down with a spatula.
6.) Pour into baking tin and bake for 35 minutes (makes about 8/10 slices)
